Re-Turn Bologna St., a circular, nonlinear return home of the exhibition and the artist's memories that have traced a triangulation between Bologna-City, Asmara-Street and Rome-Spazio Griot/Mattatoio. Mussie identifies with her work, atomized and off-center, the parts of this installation move with it to redefine the concept of home: Bologna Street 173 is everywhere, a house that shapes and takes shape depending on the bodies that inhabit it. Re-Turn Bologna Street is also a tribute to artist Tsehaytu Beraki, a political activist who sang the 30-year struggle for Eritrea's Independence.
(Eritrea, 1978), lives and works in Bologna) began her artistic career in 1998, as actress/performer with Teatrino Clan- destino until 2001. In 2002, she attends Corso Europeo di alta formazione per l’attore, direct- ed by Cesare Ronconi of the Teatro Voldoca and she continued the collaboration as an ac- tress until 2010. From 2001 to 2005 she was an active part in the research collective Open, where after the performance opentolikemu- namussie (2005) she began to investigate her own ways of being on stage. Muna Mussie’s work investigates the performing arts and the scenic languages through gesture, visual and words, to give shape to the tension that arises between different expressive poles.
